For the Parmesan Risotto

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup parmesan-cheese
  • 1 minced clove garlic or 1 minced shallot
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup white-wine
  • 1 cup arborio-rice

For the Seared Scallops

  • 1 lb jumbo-scallops
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed-oil

For the Sauteed Spinach or Kale

  • 4 cups spinach or kale
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive-oil

For the Brown Butter

  • 3 tbsp butter


  • For the Risotto: At a large skillet over moderate heat, melt the butter. Insert the garlic or shallots and simmer for a few minutes until fragrant and tender. Add the arborio-rice, stir to coat with butter.
    Add the white-wine & revel in the sizzles. Add the broth, ½ cup at a time, also simmer/stir after each addition till the rice is creamy and soft. I normally err on the side of liquid to acquire a creamier texture. Add the parmesan & stir until incorporated. Pepper and Salt to taste.
  • For the Seared Scallops: Heat oil in non-stick skillet. Pat scallops dry (very dry as you can ), sprinkle with salt & add to pan. They ought to sizzle (or even, you want a milder pan) Shake gently to prevent sticking.
    After 2-3minutes, then flip each scallop over. They ought to have a fairly golden-brown exterior along with an opaque interior. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to absorb extra-oil. Serve immediately.
  • For the Sauteed Spinach: Heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the garlic, stir for a minute to have the taste moving. Add the spinach or kale & stir fry until wilted.
  • For the Brown Butter: Place a few tbsp of butter in a skillet over moderate heat and stir it while watching it carefully, when it begins to appear gold and simmer. Remove from heat, transfer to a heat-proof bowl to cool slightly, then drizzle over the risotto, scallops, and greens.
